Kapao Fried Rice at Lime Leaf

If you’ll indulge me for a moment, I’m going to write a haiku about this most excellent of fried rice offerings:

Spicy rice mountain,
Teeming with brown-green goodness,
Chicken, basil, yum.

Thank you all so much. If you’d like to contact me for private parties or political speeches you can currently reach me at Guy Still Sitting at Table #11 Day After Day Eating Plate After Plate of Kapao Fried Rice with Chicken, c/o Lime Leaf Restaurant.
